Willow is an arcade game based loosely on the 1988 movie. You play as Willow (and later Madmartigan) who has been tasked to rescue and protect the holy baby Elora from the evil Witch Queen Bavmorda. You have to traverse over six levels with each level seeing you playing as either Willow or Madmartigan. Each character has a weapon which can be used to kill the various baddies scattered over the levels. If you get hit you lose part of your vital bar. When it's empty you lose a life. When a baddie dies he leaves behind gold which then can be spent on upgrades found in shops on each level. At the end of each level is a end of level boss which takes various amounts of shots to kill.
Willow is a platform game which scrolls when you move from the left to right. Some parts of the levels will see you moving upwards or downwards as well.
